first shots out of my new Texan .308
« on: July 15, 2017, 08:04:24 PM »
I finally put my package together and received all of my goodies from Airgun Depot. After a quick visit to the local paintball place I to the tank filled and I was able to put a half dozen shots down range. Since this is my first PCP gun I don't have much to compare it to, but WOW! Everything I had hoped for and more. I'm about a foot low at 50 yards (nice group though), but I didn't bother with tweaking the scope. Even with 1" rings I think the scope is too low and I struggle to get a good view. I'm ordering an Airforce dovetail scope rail on Monday (along with a chrony and a level) so I'll dial it in after I mount the rail.

I'm a total rookie so if those of you in the know have suggestions or advice I'm all open. Some things are wonderful discovering on your own and others just suck and either ruin outings or cost a lot of $'s

Download Chairgun for whatever device you have. If you spend some time with it, with everything set correctly, you can adjust the bore to scope centerline distance. Pay attention to the MPBR (the shaded area on the chart). This will give you a better view (excuse the pun) of the optimum scope height. Too high, too bad, too low, no go, right on, game gone!

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.
